Human Barcode Could Make Society More Organized

•, Meghan Neal
 Would you barcode your baby? Microchip implants have become standard practice for our pets, but have been a tougher sell when it comes to the idea of putting them in people. Science fiction author Elizabeth Moon last week rekindled the debate on whether it’s a good idea to “barcode” infants at birth in an interview on a BBC radio program.

“I would insist on every individual having a unique ID permanently attached — a barcode if you will — an implanted chip to provide an easy, fast inexpensive way to identify individuals,” she said on The Forum, a weekly show that features “a global thinking” discussing a “radical, inspiring or controversial idea” for 60 seconds .

This is a really good idea. The barcodes and RFIDs should be removable, however, so that police, military personnel, and Government officials - the only ones required to get them - can have them removed when they retire from their positions. This should probably apply to big bankers, as well.

The only two requirements laid on the general populace is that they should be required to carry a barcode/RFID reader/detector at all times... along with the guns that they are required to carry at all times on public property.

Re-watch the "Dark Angel" series from year 2000 to see what things are becoming.
